Vermont has an amazing variety of ski resorts (map), from mega-resorts through family-friendly areas to small old-fashioned slopes "free of snowboarding."

Vermont ski & snowboard areas are mostly privately owned and operated, meaning that Vermont skiing is also a condominium business.

Here's my Vermont Ski Map showing all the state's ski & snowboard areas.

Large condo developments surround many Vermont ski areas, offering plenty of lodging opportunities, but also a different experience than at the largely government-owned but privately-operated ski areas of New Hampshire.

Here's a photo gallery of Vermont skiing, and here are lists of ski areas in Southern, Central and Northern Vermont. Or browse the brief descriptions below of all Vermont's ski resorts from south to north:
